The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
Marilyn looks cold.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
My street, snowed over.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
I saw this cheap trunk at Home Goods and wanted it for a coffee table, but couldn't transport it home. The next day, after work, I went back to measure it and see about shipping. And I decided just to strongarm it back on the bus. When Mom called to ask if I'd found out about the cost, I said, "Oh, yeah, shipping is free." Just a little sweat!
So pretty. I miss this.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
My first major snowfall (and the only one I really faced this year). I sure wouldn't want to drive in this! But I did learn that it takes a hell of a lot to shut this city down.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
